Subject: I may have found a date...
During Game 2, Joseph F. Holt (the House of Representatives member that had to be picked out) notes that he's 32 and in his third term. Wikipedia (sprinkle appropriately) says he was born July 6, 1924 and elected in 1952, although he may have been counting from when he took office on January 3, 1953.

In any case, the available info narrows this episode down to between November 1956 (when Holt was elected to his third term) and June 29, 1957 (he turned 33 the following week, plus I have the July 6 show and this isn't it).

I Have never seen People Are Funny, maybe as a kid. Well I thank it's great. I read about it. I did not know it was a game show.

I used to watch this in reruns in the early 80s when all night television first became available here, anyone notice that the spelling the word for 10 grand game may have spawned "Wheel of Fortune" years later, and the woman who had to guess which of the three men was the congressman was the premise of "To Tell the Truth"?

Subject: A Bit Cut-Up but Good
A couple who met via Univac try to win a prize via a anagram.

A woman has to guess which person is a politician out of three choices (wasn't there a game-show with the same premise a bit later?).

A man has to guess where several capitol cities are on the United States while using a reversed map.

The print is a bit cut-up but is decent enough.

There are over 30 surviving episodes of this series and I hope some more of them are uploaded.
